Hello everybody,

I would like know if it's possible to list last twitter's members. I searched in the doc but nothing ....

Thanx for your help :)

Hi Fina,

Are you asking to know who the most recent members are who signed up for Twitter?  There isn't an API call for this.  That said, you might be able to use a stream, by doing something like this:

  1. Keep track of a date you consider to be new.
  2. Read the created_at from the user object of the status.
  3. Compare the created_at with your date to determine whether the user account was created between then and now.

This obviously has some drawbacks in that you will be looking at a lot of data and performing a lot of processing.  However, I mention it anyway, in case it's helpful or provides you with ideas.
